In 1975, Cotex began playing an active role in national fashion when it began producing lace. With our large investment in Karl Mayer looms, our constant, modern lace creations began to become a regular feature of the clothing and lingerie worn by Portuguese women. We also supplied to many national textile companies and the most famous brands that were being created and expanding in Europe.
Our success is the result of our in-depth knowledge of the market, unique accumulated experience and the close relationships developed with our clients for over 40 years.
We always bear in mind that, in addition to the quality and innovation of our products, what also sets us apart is our agility and flexibility and the speed at which we design and produce them, undertaking a commitment to keep prices at competitive levels. We are also a European manufacturer that meets the highest standards of ethics and social and environmental responsibility.
Our future depends on our being able to maintain all these competitive advantages and continuing to contribute to fashion as a true expression of the individuality of each woman.
Fernando Cruz, CEO
